Holy Trinity Catholic Church...Members at Last

We are now members of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The past two Sundays, Van, Gracie, and I have attended the Catholic mass, and it has been very special for us all. We are very excited that Gracie will be baptized in May, and then Van and I will have our marriage union blessed in the church as well. It has been a long time coming, but we are finally feeling settled in a church community. It is a HUGE parish...2000 families... I think. We are very excited about it. We have a lot of spiritual growth ahead of us, I am sure, and we look forward to it. The new church is beautiful. They just opened the doors in February. We met several of the priests. The music at mass is gorgeous. It has been wonderful to see Gracie kneel in prayer beside us with her little hands folded. She says the sweetest prayers at home and wants to always join hands with us in prayer when we do. It is a great new beginning for us as a family. I think God is smiling too. :)
